Tanushree Dutta had come out against Nana Patekar with sexual harassment charges in October past year, thus fuelling the #MeToo movement in Bollywood.

Last year, Bollywood actress Tanushree Dutta started the Metoo movement by accusing veteran actor Nana Patekar in the case of sexual harassment.

A "B Summary" report is filed when police do not find any evidence against the accused person to file a charge sheet and seek trial.

Tanushree Dutta, whose lawyer has said they will approach the Bombay High Court, said in her statement that she was exhausted of fighting but that the alleged failure of justice in her case should not discourage other survivors of harassment and assault from speaking up.

Recently, Nana Patekar got a clean chit from the police regarding the #Metoo case filed by Tanushree Dutta. Naming the witnesses whose statements had not yet been recorded by the police, the advocate alleged that the police had recorded statements those who did not knew "nothing". "We can oppose it and after hearing us, the court, if satisfied, can direct the police to re-investigate or conduct further probe", he said.

Tanushree's lawyer Nitin Satpute said police had acted negligently in order to protect Patekar.

Trump announces exit of spokeswoman Sarah Sanders
This is a breaking news story, refresh the page for updates . She has not held a formal briefing since March 11. It isn't immediately clear who will replace her.

The accused were booked under Indian Penal Code sections 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and 509 (word, gesture or act meant to insult the modesty of a woman), the official said, adding that no arrest has been made so far.

Former Miss Universe contestant Tanushree Dutta first alleged in 2008 that Patekar had touched her inappropriately during the making of a romantic comedy the same year.

In March of that year, Dutta had been contracted to shoot an "item" song for the film Horn Ok Pleassss at a studio in Goregaon with Patekar. The court is yet to accept the report, known in legal parlance as a B summary report.

The police report added Tanushree had filed the case "because of a misunderstanding and without malicious intent". "He has always been disrespectful towards women, misbehaved with them and molested actresses", she said.

She added she never approached anyone back then because "even a basic FIR I filed didn't get its due response. It will show as to how convinced she's of her own case and if she wants to pursue this".

She had also said she received "violent threats" from the fringe, far-right nationalist group Maharashtra Navnirman Sena - the political party Patekar is a part of - and that she has been made a target of a "smear campaign" on social media since reiterating her claims against the influential actor. Soon after, Tanusree submitted an application to the Amboli police seeking arrest and carrying out of narcoanalysis, brain-mapping and lie director tests on all four named in the case, stating they were "highly influential" and claiming witnesses were willing to record statements but were unable to do so as they were scared of the accused.
